example. "the washington post" said i your humble correspondent served up a bigoted commentary. quote a couple hours before president obama was declared the victor bill o'reilly offered up his explanation why it was about to use because it's a containing country not a traditional america how many. in case many might be confused about the meaning of traditional he elaborated the white establishment is now the minority. in other words, the problem was too many voters of color. how vile. how vile. in other words, you pinheads have no right to lie about me by putting fabricated words in my mouth. that's not what i said. you disgrace the journalism industry. you seek to demonize anyone who disagrees with your far left view. am i being clear enough? the whited establishment no longer dominates the political field in america. that is crystal clear. i don't lament that. i'm not pining for a return to calvin coolidge i just reported it but for crazed idealogues that's inconsequential. the post summed up their dishonest commentary saying quote: it's encouraging that many republicans are repudi
through the lens of compromise. today we saw what the stock market looks like if washington rises above politics! ♪ hallelujah the dow surging, s&p climbing, nasdaq surging. [ applause ] any time you try to analyze winners, you have to eliminate the stocks that move because of other exogenous events. oil and gas stocks had gigantic moves because of the turmoil in the middle east. so many companies can benefit from the increase in the worldwide price of oil. second, we're seeing the china plays move up. it's become quite obvious. a hard landing will be avoided. that's how copper stock like freeport or hefry machinery can rally. those aren't fiscal cliff stories. what are? what are fiscal cliff stories? how about the home improvement plays? we can sit here and say that lowe's rallied today because of reported better than expected quarter this morning. you can argue that hurricane sandy could augment earnings for the next year as we're beginning to rebuild the jersey coast. many of the hardest hit areas aren't even accessible to contractors let alone homeowners. however, i think that ret

"n.b.r.'s" washington bureau chief darren gersh began the discussion by asking baker what tighter federal policy will mean for the economy in the coming year. >> insofar as we get austerity, we get tax increases, spending cuts, that's going to slow the economy. i anticipate a deal so we are don't see the full, you know, $500 billion tax increases 100 billion spending cut

weeks since his resounding re-election, the president is on board air force one returning to washington from east asia. he's just wrapped up a tour in which he juggled multiple complex issues, including efforts to broker that cease-fire in the middle east, encouraging early signs of democracy in burma, and, of course, a budget battle at home. but for the president's opponents, it's not two weeks since the election nor two months to the inauguration. no, it's the countdown to the end of the world. a disheveled mitt romney has surrendered the romney bus gassing up his car to ride off into the sunset. or maybe just park in the car elevator and ride up and down a few times humming "born free" gently to himself. but others, well, they just can't let it go. >> american society is dependent on a giant federal nanny. >> governor chris christie slobbering wet kiss on obama's cheek. >> the left is going to scream when you say that. >> he was making out with the president. >> how vial. he got to meet bruce springsteen. it's no reason for him to turn into chris farley. >> the 30,000 crew didn't bel
. but it also raises questions about the way that big business wields its power in washington. how they wield their power and what they are capable of getting for themselves when they want something. i raise that question today in one specific context. we are at the moment when not just newly-elected senators, but incumbents are looking to get their assignments and what kind of work they are able to get done as senators. after the basic question of whether or not you can get elected, your assignment once you're in the senate is the most important thing about a senator's power in terms of what kind of impact you can have in d.c. if you want to influence policy in the senate, step one is get elected. step two is get on the right committees, and step three is try to take over your favorite committee. try to become the chair. both parties have their specific rules on how the assignments are made. the republicans have a term limit rule for being chairman or the top ranking republican on a committee. after six years, you have to roll over. you have to move on to a new place unless you can get a spe
a higher power to solve the standoff in washington. >> in washington he's deadly serious about keeping the upper hand in negotiations. democrats are defending the line in the sand. here's how democratic leader nancy pelosi when she was asked if the democrats would accept a deal extending tax cuts for the wealthy. >> talking about a possible come romiez that would cap deductions. is that something that's acceptable? >> no. the president made it very clear in his campaign that there's not enough resources. what you just described is a formula and a blueprint for our future. >> democrats from both chambers are not budging. senator dick durbin wouldn't entertain the idea of the gop of a tax hike on millionaires only. >> $250,000 for a family is a reasonable number. to go up to $1 million, i'm not sure what we're proving. there has to be revenue on the table. and those 2% or 1% of highest wage earners in america who are doing well should pay a little more. >> labor is also on board. i spoke with the service employees union on my radio show today. she says her members will be okay with letti
headed right off the cliff. joining me now is krystal ball, jonathan capehart, writer for "the washington post" and an msnbc contributor. thanks for coming on the show. >> thanks for having us. >> gop consultant mike murphy tweeted something interesting today. he said, quote, one sad possibility, mitt was our hubert h. humphrey, 1968 equivalent. next up? our mcgovern of 1972. yes, it could get even worse before it gets better. the point murphy is making is that democrats ignored their loss in the election in 1968. instead of nominating a more modern figure in '72 they went further to the left and lost probably the biggest loss of that time. i think the governor only won one state. do you think that's going to happen to the republicans? >> i certainly think it's possible and somewhat of an argument can be made that they already sort of went down that path. the argument after john mccain in 2008 was he wasn't conservative enough. a lot of people are still saying he wasn't a real conservative. he really didn't believe in the values. there's also this notion that, you know, the problem isn't
. i'm chris matthews in washington. let mae start tonight with this. victory has 100 fathers john f. kennedy said, defeat is an orphan. let me tell you the people in the republican conservative parts of this country are rip. they had it in november -- rather they had it in october, they lost it in november. somehow like an nfl receiver, they saw that football landing in their hands, saw it floating right in there, and then it managed to slip right through. gone. the whole ball game. the game they had won now lost. and that's why they're looking for someone to blame. they can't blame that liberal obama so they're blaming that liberal romney. that northeastern liberal crowd. texas senator elect ted cruz is cruller still. he accuses romney of going out there and french kissing obama. yes, they're blaming romney now. they were blaming chris christie for working with obama during hurricane sandy. now they're blaming romney for dancing with him. the strict orthodox side of the republican party are blaming the candidate himself for giving away their virtue. ed rendell is the former governo

to see how your great work here in rhode island is being amplified through washington around the country. "recovery benefits everyone" is the national theme this year, and when we see an event like this, when we see people in recovery, family, friends, and allies, everybody getting together, a lot of love, just a lot of celebration. it's very meaningful. it tells the community that people can and do recover and addictions are beatable. we have a torch-lit parade which goes down to waterplace park, and there are 300 luminaries, candles, in which people have-have filled out different cards. we have the candlelight procession, the torchbearers, and we're going to march right into the middle of waterfire. that brings it out into the public forefront. when you see the darkness descend, and you see 300 candles, and you see the torches, and then for the first time this year, we will be part of the official lighting of waterfire. rhode island is just, you know, the smallest state with the biggest event. what can i say? we are here today to advocate for recovering alcoholics and addicts, to educa
of state hillary clinton to the region. and danielle nottingham is standing by in washington, d.c. to tell us who the secretary will be meeting with later today. danielle. >> reporter: frank, secretary clinton will be meeting with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu and then tomorrow she is supposed to sit down with egypt's president. and it's really important for secretary clinton to do her best to try to broker some kind of peace deal along with the rest of the international community. they are very concerned about the violence spilling into other areas of the region and we know right now it's very volatile there not only in what's happening in israel and in gaza but also in syria and egypt and in lebanon, frank. >> now, the u.s. government has a strong stand against hamas. so who will meet with the hamas leaders to broker the peace deal? >> reporter: that's egypt's president right now. mohamed morsi has been meeting with hamas. of course, the united states won't sit down with hamas leaders because they have not renounced terrorism. so that complicates the situation even further. b

the fiscal cliff could be a good year for economic growth putting it all on washington and congress to get the fiscal policy in order in order to avoid the fiscal cliff. we have not talked about this, raising the debt ceiling, pushing it again, and he warned that a default could be crisis for business opportunity and actions so with that, i guess we're ready to go out to peter listening to the federal reserve chairman as well in washington with a recap and what stuck out for him. hello, peter. >> hey, that's right. i thought the comments in the end in particular saying the potential for the economy to strengthen significantly exists out there if washington can get its act together and do something to fix the fiscal cliff because he said while the fed, of course, is standing by to provide help for the economy to help keep the economic recovery going, quote, "i don't think the fed has the tools to offset that" ie, the country going off the fiscal cliff, the economy going over the fiscal cliff, but he did say, repeated the fed is standing by continuing to do all it can to keep the economy goi
in washington. you know this, too the money has always been on the side of immigration reform. because corporations want these guest workers. they want to exploit the visiting workers and whatnot and if it means that they have to give up some path to citizenship they'll do it. but the problem is they've created analect an electoral base that is motivated by their issues with brown people, gay people, by their issues of cultural i i implications of women having control over their bodies? >> eliot: i agree. the issue for the republican party is that those issues that motivated them, as you said, were the social issues which lost the election for them. they are no longer the demographics of the electorate, and no longer permit them to get to 50%. either popular vote for electoral college. they peel them off one by one. as they lose them they have no argument to make other than what john boehner sees left to make on taxes. that's what he wants to do. i'm not persuaded that that isn't a losing strategy or epidemic their only possible strategy. >> when the republican party comes around in fo
there is so much waste and unneeded programs in washington. >> people want to cut social security? not republicans, not democrats, here in washington we have people who want to cut social security? >> it's the largest federal program, social security is. it's larger than defense. cut social security, cut medicare, we're going to freeze. >> let me get one in here before we go. i'm reading in the papers today, the financial times that they want business tax loopholes, so-called tax loopholes closed. no rate reduction on the other side. they just want to close them down. of course we're talking about oil and gas and coal. they want $150 billion in revenues. that's going to be on top of the 400 or 500 billion dollars. tax rates may not go up but they're not going down. i tell you, to me this has stalemate. the reason i like this segment very much is the fact is stock market people think this is going to be easy. mr. obama called a couple of ceos over the weekend. i'd say right now there is just as good a chance for a stalemate as there is for a solution. last word? >> i'm willing to b

. >> rose: also, david ignatius of the "washington post" from washington. >> on the larger question here of whether the obama administration before the election had an interest in minimizing the public's understanding that al qaeda still posed a threat, a different threat from the one that we were used to with bin laden but a threat nonetheless, i think the answer increasingly yes s yes. they didn't want the public to see that effort as anything other than a great success. that was part of obama's appeal. so i'd say on the particular details, i don't see much. on the broad theme, did they want the public to feel al qaeda was down for the count? yes, i think they did. >> rose: we conclude with julian sands, a british actor, talking about harold pinter, the english playwright and nobel laureate. >> in comparison with harold, other people looked blurred because he was such a life force. he was so present. he was so forceful. and he lived by pure intention. >> rose: aluf, dvid ignatius and julian sands when we continue. captioning sponsored by rose communications from our studios in new york
. and while everybody is worried, washington, guess where they are, they're on vacation. tom: the fiscal cliff is looming, many companies are preparing for the worst. already cutting back on things like hiring and spending among those kind of things but nobody in washington, nobody is there working to get the mess sorted out. the president touring asia, congress is on recess. tea party activist says the government has got to get their priorities in check. and so this is something that has been a pet peeve of mine not just for the last couple of days or since the election, because once we knew there was going to be a fiscal cliff, we were talking about this six, eight months ago and everybody washington sat back and did nothing. >> i think it is funny people are criticizing the president for being abroad in asia during this crisis. the president can do what he does at the white house, which is absolutely nothing to prevent the economic calamities that will come on all americans because of his fiscal policies. at the end of the day the worst fiscal cliff is becoming a sensible term like green en
